in texas, senator cruz, in a heated town hall. could an awkward moment be coming for two conservative stars in the lone star state? here in gotham, anthony weiner's wild spiral to single digits may have opened the door for an unexpected contender and maybe the next mayor. bill de blasio. feeling like he's got a lot of mojo with just 20 days till primary day. good morning from new york city. it's wednesday, august 21st. it's "the daily rundown." my first reads of it the mornin. we're going to start with some domestic politics. the state of both political parties is anything but strong these days. the only reason there isn't much hand ringing about the democratic party is because the republican party is the one in such disa ray. the open warfare has become a more public spectacle than we've seen in years. many republican leaders are exhausted from dealing with the tea party and some seem to be downright giddy over what's happened in the last week. they don't put their name on their giddiness. not even 250 days old and already he's become probably among the most recognizable faces of the tea p

by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for our nation's quest for justice until every eligible american has the chance to enter -- exercise his or her right to vote. texans are fighting back. >> this is deeply depressing to see the chief law enforcement officer in the country use partisan politics and that's all it is, to drive a wedge between americans based on race and ethnicity. it's really sad because we have come a long way. obviously we've elected barack obama president of the united states. >> the senator suggests much of this push is about a lame duck administration trying to turn texas into a blue state. arthel: so is there danger if it's interpreted as republicans trying to restrict voting? >> there are certainly some people who think so. virginia, arkansas, tennessee and north dakota have enacted new voter i.d. laws this year and colin powell is among those saying that voting will make it more difficult and immediately turn off voters the g.o.p. needs.

to confirm a couple of these people and boom, that's it. >> let's hear the pitch. ted cruz down in texas the other night. >> if president obama decides that he's going to force a partial temporary government shutdown, and it's worth noting the last time that happened, we saw number one the parade of horrible people like to talk about on tv that didn't happen. what happened was a temporary suspension of nonessential federal government spending. >> well, that's, of course, what happens if he does blink. of course, what this is ridiculous. let's play around with this nuclear button for awhile and see what happens. if you don't do it, it doesn't do it. but if both sides take that point of view, what happens? >> then we do have a shutdown. >> and default and it keeps going. >> i think obama is going to stand this time. he knows he caved in 2011. i think he's going to stand a little tougher. most people will blame the republicans. most people know the republicans are saying no to everything and causing more trouble. >> jim you said something. he's not the oldest guy in the world. i'm older tha

average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge
